My Rocking Teapot

I’m loving this beautifully crafted porcelain teapot and wooden/chrome tipping stand. This really appeals to me, being the tea afficionado that I am. It would definitely make for an interesting talking point in my kitchen!

Having weak/numb hands, this would help greatly with pouring a cup of tea from a full/heavy teapot safely. Although I don’t think I would be able to use this without the help of someone else to set it up; there would still be the challenge of pouring the hot water from the kettle into the teapot and then lifting the pot into its cradle. That said it’s still a lovely piece and I wonder if it could be modified to heat the water in the teapot whilst still sitting in its stand.
